    With more than 1.8 inches of rainfall in Boston, Sunday was the wettest calendar day since September 2015.

    This afternoon Matthew pulls off into eastern Canada as a strong high-pressure system coming into the Great Lakes with chilly wind, and sunshine, for this afternoon. Highs today in the 50s to near 60°. Wind from the northwest gusting 30 to 35 mph.

    Clear skies tonight and cold with scattered frost and freeze low temperature near 32°.

    High pressure right overhead tomorrow and Wednesday means nice weather with sunshine and temperatures back into the 60s.

    In the tropics Nicole expected to strengthen back to a hurricane and threaten Bermuda on Thursday.

    Here in New England we have a weak cold front Thursday afternoon with a few showers, then new high pressure from Canada with fair seasonable weather likely for our weekend.
